Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan, 7 others detained. How NCB busted rave party?
Three people including Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan's son Aryan Khan have been arrested after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) raided a cruise ship and busted a drugs party on Saturday.
Eight detainees had been taken for medical tests in Mumbai on Sunday.
Besides Aryan Khan, two others -Munmum Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant - have also been arrested.
Earlier today, the drugs control agency had issued a statement saying Aryan Khan was among the eight people questioned in the case, who also included Munmun Dhamecha, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker, Gomit Chopra and Arbaaz Merchant.
The NCB had boarded the cruise ship disguised as passengers and conducted the raid once the ship sailed and the party started. The cruise ship was scheduled to go to Goa on Saturday night and return to Mumbai by Monday.
NCB sources said Aryan Khan's phone was seized and scanned by the authorities to check for any indication of his involvement in the possession or consumption of drugs.
The NCB has also summoned six of the organisers who had planned the cruise party. A team of NCB has been sent to nab the drug peddler who supplied drugs to the cruise ship party. Crew members, several event organisers and some foreign nationals are also under NCB's scanner.
A Delhi-based event company is believed to have organised the parties on passenger cruises on October 2, 3 and 4.
According to NCB they had received very confidential information 15 days ago about the drugs party on the ship after which they carried out the operation. Drugs like ecstasy, cocaine, mephedrone and charas were recovered from the cruise and a case has been registered. The suspects had hidden the drugs in their clothes, undergarments and purses, during the operation.
Actor Shah Rukh Khan is likely to postpone his shoot in Spain for a song for his movie Pathan after his son was detained by the NCB in the Mumbai cruise drug case.
